Review

A love of painting is immediately revealed in the work of Liz Gribin. She is indeed a “painterly” painter. Within that, she creates a poetic atmosphere and a sensitive and refreshing rendering of the figure which is rare today. Elegant abstraction lends a sense of structure to the relationship of figure to background and gives solidity to these sometimes fragile “out of the air” images.

[Liz] now aims to convey emotion rather than realism. Her abstract figures often have featureless faces, and she avoids rendering too many details, preferring to let poses and gestures lend her work its emotive quality, which she doesn’t attempt to define.

The manner is casual, the poses of her figures, their attitudes, are almost offhand. It is her skillful drawing that gives us the subject matter.

It was an emotional experience for me. ... I just was completely floored by (Gribin’s) work.
